Christmas Carol Project Team
Walk for ALS 2011
On Saturday, June 11th, 2011 cast and friends of The Christmas Carol Project participated in the Walk for ALS and raised $4,495, an increase over our goal of $4000. Last year, we were very happy to have raised over $3500.oo for this cause.
You can help us raise funds to provide care, support and equipment for those living with ALS in Alberta and for research in Canada. ALS (or "Lou Gehrig's Disease) is a progressive and ultimately fatal neuromuscular disease.
We are showing our support for our friend Colin Lay, who has been the invaluable front-of-house and live recording sound engineer for our annual Christmas Carol Project concert for 14 years. Colin has also provided impeccable live sound and studio engineering for countless musicians in Alberta and beyond. Colin was diagnosed with ALS in early 2010.
In solidarity with Colin and other people living with ALS, we will be continuing to participate in this great event and hope you will too. Anything that you might be able to give would be greatly appreciated and honoured. More info below or click

Our friend Colin has told us how excellent the ALS Society of Alberta has been in giving him immediate and practical support.
